Life Transitions

Change is one of the most difficult things to handle for most people.

Change happens in many forms and to different degrees every day of our lives. Some changes happen unexpectedly and may require us to take a close look at our beliefs, assumptions, and patterns. Sometimes the most vexing changes can be those that are inevitable, expected, and yet unknown: Life Transitions.

We don’t generally think much about what it means to grow from being a child into being a teenager or from being single to being a partner and having children. We know that we will (most likely) at some point grow older, retire — but few of us think about what that means in everyday life. All of these life transitions are usually accompanied by some very deep inner changes. Our self-image can change dramatically, causing us to question our understanding of ourselves and what we are capable of. We are asked to face different and new challenges and responsibilities, adjust to new limitations, be open to new ideas and possibilities or face and overcome our fears and prejudices.

Life transitions are turning points in our life-story, and how we navigate them defines how the rest of our story goes. Much hinges on them and all too often we only think of them when they are creating problems in our lives. Working consciously with those times in our lives can be a deeply rewarding and enriching experience, one that helps us expand who we are in the world, rather than pushing us around in it.
